How bad do you want it?

Kenyan marathoner Michael Kunyuga was just feet away from the Hannover Marathon finish line when he collapsed to the ground. Fellow Kenyan Duncan Koech was quickly approaching but Kunyuga's first instinct was to crawl across the finish line.

Kunyuga held on to second place and finished in two hours, 10 minutes and 16 seconds. Koech was only three seconds behind for third. The second place finisher receives €4,000 (almost $5,000) while third place pays out €2,500 (just over $3,000) so it's understandable why Kunyuga scrambled to secure the runner-up spot.

Medicical attendants assisted Kunyuga after the he was finished.

It appears that Kunyuga's time is also a personal best. He ran 2:10:43 at the Padova Marathon in Italy last year.

The race was won by Ethiopian Seboka Negussa Erre in 2:09:44.
